Modern Design Brings a Fresh Aesthetic to Classic Colors for Lille OSC 2015-16 Home Kit
June 24, 2015
Two-tone red design and dark navy blue detailing advance club tradition.
This season Lille OSC will play in a bold new home kit combing two tones of red to create a fresh and distinctive aesthetic.
The body of the new home shirt is in the traditional red of Lille OSC, with a commanding darker shade used on the shoulders and sleeves, which together form a bold, single panel.
A lightweight and modern crew collar with a dark navy blue trim around the back caps the shirt and is complemented by sleeve cuff trims of the same hue.
A dark navy blue stripe runs down each of the shirt’s flanks and continues along the sides of the navy shorts.
The new home socks, which mirror the color scheme of the shirt, are red with a navy blue band at the top and a wide vertical stripe of tonal chevrons running down the back of the calf.
The new Lille OSC home kit is available in stores and on nike.com starting June 25.
While this new kit represents a proud symbol of the club, it offers players the very latest in Nike performance innovation, fabric technology, moisture management and environmental sustainability.
NIKE DRI-FIT TECHNOLOGY
Nike Dri-FIT technology draws sweat away from the body to the exterior of the shirts and shorts where it quickly evaporates. This allows players to perform at their best by remaining cooler, drier and more comfortable.
The laser-cut ventilation holes and mesh panels in key areas of the kit are designed to improve performance by increasing air circulation to the players’ bodies and helping regulate their temperatures.
The jersey is crafted using a lightweight solid fabric on the sleeves and front combined with a full mesh back panel to increase airflow and facilitate enhanced movement.
Nike places sustainable innovation at the heart of its kits through the use of recycled polyester, delivering unrivalled performance and lower environmental impact.
Each piece of the kit – the shirt, shorts and socks – is constructed with recycled polyester, which is made from recycled plastic bottles that are melted down to produce fine yarn used to create the fabric. Each kit is made using an average of 18 recycled plastic bottles. Since 2010, Nike has diverted more than 2 billion plastic bottles from landfills into recycled polyester – enough to cover about 3,500 football pitches.
By using recycled polyester, Nike is also reducing the energy consumed in the manufacturing process by up to 30 percent compared to virgin polyester. For more information, visit nikebetterworld.com.
